Scientists at Berkeley Labs have discovered a way to create long-lasting 3D-printed structures, some smaller than a human hair, entirely out of liquid by using a "nanoparticle supersoap" to keep the liquids separate.
Using only mechanical elements like gears and springs, researchers have devised a way for unpowered plastic objects to communicate with your Wi-Fi network, opening the door to new possible applications.
Meet the Mooz, a 3D printer that is not only fully modular, but can also operate as a CNC carver and laser engraver. Because everyone is expected to be a jack of all trades these days, even our machines.
Who says 3D-printing is only for scientists, architects, and other professional adults? Certainly not the team behind Toybox, which believes that the best way to explore the possibilities of 3D-printing is to introduce it to children.
Two students from the Zurich University of Applied Sciences have developed a 3D printer that uses a tilting bed to print objects with a critical overhang. Suddenly your complex prints just got less time-consuming!
A team of young entrepreneurs from Beijing China wanted to bring 3D printing to the masses. The product of their hard work is the PocketMaker 3D, a printer with a price tag so low that almost anyone can afford it.
Looking for a 3D printer that won't break the bank? You ought to be looking at the da Vinci Mini., a 21st century device that costs less than $300. If you're looking to create chess pieces or other items of the same size, this may just do…
Boeing and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory have together landed a new world record for creating the largest solid object 3D-printed in a single piece. The special tool will help make the wings of Boeing's next-generation 777X jet.
A team of students from well-known Paris design school ENSCI Les Ateliers had an idea that could change the face of tattooing. Their idea? An industrial robot that could autonomously create a tattoo from a database of images.
Have you dreamed of designing a 3D-printed tool for use on the International Space Station? Here is your chance. The ISS Design Challenge asks makers to develop an object that will be printed on the ISS and used by its astronauts.
